to me
Dear Mr Venkata Kailasam,

I saw with interest several of your uploads in YouTube as well as your blog/sites. It is indeed very commendable work that you have been carrying out to bring in new audiences to Carnatic music.

I will be happy to add to some of your content, esp. from non-commercial recordings of Venkata Kavi's compositions that I may possess that maybe otherwise scarce to obtain.

I just had a couple of requests:

It may be a good idea to call him Oottukkadu Venkata Kavi - since it will be easier for people to identify him with that kind of image.

On a personal note, my name is one word and it is now consistently being printed more like Chitravina N Ravikiran (since a few other Ravikirans have also emerged in the field in recent times).

If you need any clarification on any song/composer that I have played on your uploads, please feel free to email me...

With sincere regards,

Chitravina N Ravikiran

Dear Shri Ananthanarayanan, I have been thinking of you everyday as I almost everyday enjoy the fruits of your efforts sitting in the armchair, by making best use of E SWARA, a veritable gold mine.
I am also a retired official, settled at Bangalore, presently at Seattle, USA, with my daughter and son-in-law, wife and grand children to give company, ample time to enjoy nature and music and all the good things of life, by the Grace of God.
The least I can do in return is to simply acknowledge the bounty around and say thanks to people like you who have made it easy for us to know so much about so many things.
Regards and let you be bestowed by Almighty with the Best of His Wishes is our prayer.
Balasubramanian T.K. ( Seattle)

even from far off continents.Thank you again,Sir.-( Swisterland)

Browsed your blog here:
Very comprehensive collection of Carnatic music and songs which is delight for all music lovers.

Iniya Manithar Avargallukku,

I came across your musical web Eswara by chance in an attempt to refine myself on Music. Its really fruitful. Best things in our Lives ie most In-valuables are available at free of cost. Your web too... My sincere heartful thanks for your kind works for it may reach & help someone even beyond our generation. I liked everything in your web. Particulalry your grand kids drawing about the zebra..Zoo. God should give you everything in life. I pray for all your family members.

I have no music background or knowledge but i have now passed half of my life with a guiltiness that i did not try to learn it. Though my schooling was in a village near neyveli, i started my 6th std in TTV school in chennai in 74. There the Asst Head Master cum PT master daily used to torture me. He used to command me onething to do, a dirty job daily which I hated. He dont know me. He never took any subject in our class. I was not also in NCC where he was the master. But still today I wonder why he chose to torcher me.

You know what he asked me to do?

To sing daily the school prayer in HM room in Mic. There were many students interested in doing the job but he picked only me. The reason he loved my voice. But i disliked the job due to my orientation (that time) towards Dravidian movement. I have recommended many of my brahmin friends to the Asst HM for the prayer duty. But he insisted only me. Though I did without any interest, God gifted me something in return. If you go now to the TTV school, you can find a big board. In that my name will be there as the best out going student for the year 1979. It was the gods gift in return for me ( though i did not ask him). But now I realise I have failed something in what God asked me for Him. I should have developed my vocal skill. Under social circumstances, I could not do it then. Its my guilt. I am always sorry about this…. Switzerland

A neat carnatic Music Site.

The song, the lyrics with meaning and a video of the artist-all add luster to the site.

Continue to provide, thank you,

Dear Sir,

I am one of the regular viewers of your blog 'E'swara'. Your new blog 'E-swari' also is interesting. I down loaded songs of sudha's songs from this blog and observe that these down loads are supported by 'Real Audio' only and not wmp or nero or other players. Can you
please convert these into ordinary mp3 and make it available / playable in normal players?

Sir, Namaskarams. Im an ardent fan of MSS Amma renderings. I have seen the videos uploaded by you.Im very very thankful for your wonderful work. The videos uploaded by you are very good but they are of a very low resolution.

I wish to take your blessings...

Thanking you,

I feel I do not know you well enough to address you as Vkailasam !)
Though I have been wanting to see your website (or blog) for many days , I got round to it only today. I was astounded at the scholarship and effort the blog showed !

hello Sir,
I am great admirer of your Marvellous service to Music Lovers..I am a Carnatic Music Student from Trichy learning under Vidhwan Trichy Sri K Ramesh.:…

a request: can you kindly help me to get thyagaraja's Kalgada krithi "samayamu emarake", for listening on net -- audio, or, video. most grateful, thank you!

Dear Brother,
Thank you so much for your uploads of India's Divine sounds of Music….

This is just a general comment, hope you like it. Do not fear the winds of adversity. Remember: A kite rises against the wind rather than with it. When in a tight corner I usually find that difficult moment has the potential to open my eyes and open my heart. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.
Thank you my friend. Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success…

love the music ! Blessings to you

Yours is a wonderful Channel, holding the Indian Cultures and values very high,
What is your name Sir.
DK Sharma…

Thanks for the great uploads. Living far away from India I feel I dont miss the music only because of the technology and tech savvy enthusiasts like you. Best Wishes.

Thanks a lot. All the very best !

Madurai Mani Iyer:
Mani Iyer was a great devotee of Maha Periava who treated Mani Iyer like his own child. Mani Iyer saw Sri Periavaal as Sri Kapaaleswarar, Sri Parameswara himself .
Once Mani Iyer was singing in His presence after he had lost his eyesight . While singing he heard someone accompanying him with beautiful rhythm. After completing the song, he wanted to know from vembu Iyer as to who was accompanying him with such a beautiful rhythm. Immediately Sri Maha periava intervened and told Mani Iyer that it was he with a peel of orange in his hand like kanjira. "Naan taan appaaa taalam potadhu!", Suddenly Mani Iyer broke down with tears and cried "Appane Kapaaleeswara!, parameswaraa! "yen" Periavaala thaalam potadhu?" He cried and told "En periavaalai paaka mudiyalaye, enge irukkaa" Periyavaal in his voice filled with kaarunyam replied "ido un pakkathileye irukkenappa" Mani Iyer repeatedly told "Appane Kapaaleswaraaa! Parameswaraa!" and prostrated. Periavaal blessed him with his own benign smile like a mother to her child.( Free translation)

above by Baraneetharan in Anandavikatan

Madurai Mani Iyer-Sabhapatiki Veru Deivam-Abhogi-Gopalakrishna Barathi

The song has a nice history behind it. One fine morning, Shri. Barathi visited Thiruvayyaru and paid respects to Shri. Thyagaraja Swamigal. During the conversation, Shri. Thyaragaja queried whether he had written any kriti , set to Abogi raga. Shri. Gopalakrishna Barathi felt sad that he did not think about that raga all along. He replied saying that I will just take a bath and come back to see you again. By the time, he finished his bath the song was ready !
Now, the song:

o lord, who self manifests and who is in the form of a linga that is eternal and undecaying! Lord of the countless universes! Protect me o auspicious one!

Embodiment of letters! One of inestimable glory! Mounted on the bull! Enchanter of the world! Expert in chastising daksha! Protector of the gods! Lord of brahma! Expert in grammar and poetry! Imbibing nectar! Your glance is full of compassion and deep meaning!

Resident of the badari (jujube) forest, in the company of the goddess! Lord of bhadrakali! Visible to devotees! Respected by vishnu, the father of cupid and other gods! Devoid of the blemish of worldly acts! Progenitor of the kind subrahmanya! Possessor of countless good qualities! Praised by the noble! Benevolent! Possessor of a butter like heart! Enjoying the music of tumburu! Arising out of the syllable "hrim"! Lord of the golden meru mountain! Always giving boons like the kalpaka tree to those who take refuge! Of the lotus like feet! Universe personified! Possessing chariots, elephants, horses and foot soldiers! Having annual festival in the month of chaitra (april/may)! Eternal wealth! Filled with true bliss!
